Ram was a renowned knifemaker, designer and owner of Zero Knives in partnership with his dear friend Laura Campbell. Knife making began as a hobby in 2002 under the guidance of veteran knife maker, mentor and friend, Larry Davidson. Ram's fascination with the mechanics, craftsmanship, and aesthetic detail of knives drove his talent and passion to create the beautiful custom knives that were admired throughout the knife community and cherished by his customers. Additionally, Ram's passion for life extended to more pursuits. He trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Carlos Machado, where he was proud to be promoted to advanced belts and went on to become a popular writer for blogs devoted to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). He trained for and completed a half marathon, was an avid gun collector and traveler.





He is survived by his mother, Guila, his father Raffy, his step-mother Marsha, his sisters GJ, Gia, Gemm, and Seiko, his brothers Polo, Lawrence, and Tobias, his nieces Anjelica and Sabina, his nephews Craig, Ethan, and Carter, his ex-wife, Dyan, his stepsons Lupe and Luis,his step granddaughter Rebecca, his girlfriend Ivy, his beloved dogs Buddy, Basie, and Bonnie as well as numerous other family members and friends.





This is a profound loss for all who knew and loved him. Rest well, Ram.
